Murder She Baked: A Plum Pudding Murder Mystery



And thank you for listening

to "the Dr. Love show:

On this chilly but beautiful

holiday morning.

It is my privilege

to spend this time...

Good morning, Hannah.

Good morning, Mayor Bascomb.

- Well, how are you?

- Fine. Thank you.

Mrs. Norton, nice to see you.

Cold one today, huh?

Oh, it is frigid, mayor,

totally frigid.

Oh, my goodness.

Ahh. Smells terrific in here.

Thank you, mayor.

What can I do for you?

I need a treat for my wife.

She's got a bad case of the flu.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that.

What about

some frosted ginger cookies?

Oh, sounds good to me.



Oh, uh, hey,

take those deliveries

to the back for me, please.

- Lisa! We have a delivery.

- On it!

How many cookies

were you thinking, mayor?

Two, three?

I was thinking maybe three.

If I remember correctly,

these cookies

are your wife's favorite.

Thank you so much.

Lovely. That'll be $3.00, mayor.

Oh! Ha. Sorry.

And thank you for donating

to the Christmas benefit.

I heard you were

auctioning yourself off

to the highest bidder,

is that true?

Well, not me personally.

Um, but I am auctioning off,

to the highest bidder,

a different dessert

delivered to their door

every month for an entire year.

Would it be unethical

for me to make a bid on that,

even though I'm emceeing

the auction?

I'm sure if your money's good,

they'll take it!

Thanks a lot.

Bye, ladies!


Sophie comes down with the flu.

She wouldn't get the flu shot!

Why is that?

Oh, Sam at the pharmacy

put a sign in the window

that said "flu shots available,

but only for people over 45."

Hi, ladies. Have you heard

what Sophie bascomb did?

She handmade these ornaments,

all to raise money

for the children's hospital.

They're only $10 each,

but all the proceeds

go to the hospital.

Oh, well, that's

a bargain, for sure.

We'll each take two.

Lovely! I'll leave them here

for you to pick out. Thank you!

Now, do not spend my money.

I have plenty of--

You're listening to Eden lake's

very own "the grace notes."

It's December 18th,

which is a reminder

that there's only

seven more shopping days left

until Christmas.

This is Dr. Love reminding you

that life without love

is only half a life.

Okay, and the snow angels.

No. Yeah...

All right. See you later.

Not too much filling, okay?

That was the crazy elf tree lot.

They're running out

of their daily order,

so they need sugar cookies

and snow angels.

Okay, well, we're

running low on both.

I'll be there later.

I'm picking out a tree

with Andrea

for the benefit,

so I'll take them

what we have, okay?

Will you make

another double batch

of the sugar cookies

and the snow angels?

Please? And thank you!

Tom, hey, will you box up

two dozen sugar cookies

and snow angels for me?

We're putting them on hold

for the crazy elf tree lot.

You okay, Luanne?

The crazy elf tree lot

is making me crazy.

Oh, are they your clients?

I've been asked

to review their books,

but these numbers

just don't add up.

How about

some Holly-jolly coffee for you?

You know what'll help you

balance those books?

A cranberry scone on the house.

Lisa, how about

a cranberry scone

for miss Luanne?

Good morning, all!

In desperate need

of a Holly-jolly to go.

Large cup.

I have six more properties

to look at today.

Oh, good morning, mother.

Lisa, can you believe it?

My mother is opening

an antique shop.

Oh! Congratulations,

Mrs. Swensen.

Thank you. Found

a lease in Greenport.

Oh. Mother, that's

a really long commute.

Oh, don't worry.

You'll still see me

all the time.


It's strategically situated

in the mall.

"Location, location, location."


- Oh, hello!

- Hello!

I signed up for a business class

at the community college.


The teacher, miss whiting,

says the key to success

is choosing a retail location

with lots of foot traffic.

As you have here,

by the way, Hannah.

Oh. A business class?

A splendid idea, Delores.

Shows initiative!

And at your age.

Well, yes.

Karen, Norman Rhodes's mother,

signed up, too,

but she's been A.W.O.L.

The last three classes.

Oh, well, you know,

Sophie Bascomb's come down ill.

- Oh!

- Delores.

Oh, hello, Nancy!

How are you?

Wonderful, thank you.

What can I get you?

Um, medium cappuccino, please.

Great, and a pastry?

Try one of those. Delicious.

Okay, I'll try one.

Hannah, you know

my dear friend, Dr. Schmidt?

Well, I know you better

as "Dr. Love."

I'm a big fan

of your radio program.

"A life without love

is only half a life."

Remember that!

That is exactly right.

Maybe you can give

some relationship advice

to Hannah.

- Oh?

- I don't need advice.

My daughter is stringing

along two different beaus.

I'm not stringing anyone along.

A mother can only hope and pray

that you will clearly

see that Norman Rhodes

is the best candidate, Hannah.

He's handsome,

and he's stable,

and he's a dentist.

Mother. How about

a cranberry scone?

See? She needs guidance.

- This is amazing!

- Yeah, it's great.

So cute!

Welcome to the crazy elf

Christmas tree lot.

Christmas is our business.

I'm elf Molly.

How can we help you

make this your best

yuletide Christmas ever?

I need to buy a tree.

A 9 to 11 foot Douglas fur.

Crazy elf is crazy!

And so are my prices!

The crazy elf is crazy

and so are his prices.

Oh! My gosh. You only take cash?

Cash and carry.
